Bridging courses for AMC clinicals

Discussion in 'AMC Clinical Exam' started by Doctor from Brisbane, Jan 24, 2007.

  1. There are several organisations that offer clinical bridging programs. You can apply after passing AMC MCQ and gain PR status.

    The GPEA offers two clinical bridging courses covering stage 1 & 2 of the AMC clinical examination. You can complete both courses within the 10 week program or choose either clinical stage 1 or stage 2 M-CATS.


    The VMPF offers a government assisted course on full time basis over 22 weeks with bedside tutorials, role play workshops and communication skills. For this you need to be eligible for BOTPLS (loan).

    Or a weekly fast track course over 12 weeks with 2 hour tutorials in medicine, 2 hours in surgery and 1 hour in Obs & gyn
  2. Dear Doctor ,

    how much the coast ???
    most of us are with out job even the doctors with jobs they have family to look after and they have to pay for the fees of the clinical
  3. The cost of bridging course varies from place to place e.g. in Melbourne it is appx. 4500 AU #, where as in Sydeny it may be appx. 3500 AU #, also duration of the courseis a major deciding factor, cheers, Dr.Anees from Perth.

    Just to let you all know - the Centre for International Graduates in Brisbane (Royal Brisbane Hospital) has Clinical and MCQ preparation courses which Queensland health will pay for IF you are currently working for Queensland Health! So it costs you nothing. These courses are absolutely EXCELLENT for the exams.
    Thanks

    you have to apply for a tourist visa. if you have a first degree relative in Aus then he can apply for a family sponsored visa for you. I myself passed the MCQ and is applying for a tourist visa.
